New] Exodus Dae To Feeling Of Unpro- 

tection When Militia Quits Ill-Fated 

Town. Belt Citizens Leaving. 

Senator Shannan Say* "Citizant Are Living On Edge Of 

Volcano." Insurance Companies Canc el ling Rulu. 

Landlords Ask Tenants To Move. 



Regardless of the fiet that ovary 
effort has been made to quiet the un 
re >t among the Negro citizens in East 
St. Louis. It ii . undeniably true that 
the ill fated city is gradually being 
evacuated. - This does not apply only 
"io tho recent comers to tne plane, bat 
to old residents as. well- Men who have 
■pent their lives in building up a sab' 
stantlal business, w ho'\, have accumu- 
listed property and havr established 
reputations for ' thrift and honesty, 
whoso honor is above reproach, u« 
leaving all the fruits of their energy 
behind and fleeing to other parts. 
Wagon load after wagon load of house- 
hold effects are almost continuously 
crossing the . bridges to St. Louis. 
Others going in different directions, 
travel to surrounding towns, where 
housing conditions aie already over- 
taxed - and many tents are beginning 
to appear. The tenement districts of 
St.. Louis are. becoming congested i 
few .houses are. for rent. There is 
estimate) of the number of families who 
have left East St. Louis, 'but 'many are, 
of the opinion that within another < 
only a feyj wiU remain. 

It m». generally. thought about a 
week ago that eonditioen wen nettled 
and tfce Negroes would" return," but 
since it has been learned that . all i h 
troops will be Withdrawn oil or before 
the 35th of this month, preparatory 
to being mustered into .the regular 
army service; and means* of repeated 
statements being circulated that so 
soon as the soldiers are gone the Ne 
grasi 'would again be attacked by the 
mob, a new exodus has been started 
by those who were inclined to stay. 
They state thai their homes- have been 
invaded by the' police and military 
forces and their arms taken and they 
are thus left at the meroy of the 
without self protection. 

To date, twelve indictments have 
been returned against 8 ' white and 6 
Colored. .In the eyidenee being sub- 
mitted, charges and cross charges ar< 
being made by the police and. militia 
against each other, but there seems te 
be a general inclination, by all, to fas- 
ten the blame an the Negro and re- 
lieve the city of financial reapo 
bility. 



Reliable information has rea 

the Argiis that Are insurance agents 
in East St- Louis are cancelling risks 
on property occupied by Negroes and 
nil! not ran? the . reapo niflrilily aft- 
er the militia departs. It is 'rnmored 
that landlords are requesting their 
tensnts to move and that certain t: 
payment furniture housee are offering 
ts 'take back partially paid for fur- 
niture and refund amount advanced. 
CITY COUNCIL BLOCKS PI.AN TO 
fiKMOVK POLICE BOARD 
At a meeting of the City Council of 
East St. Lonis yesterday the Board of 
Aldermen rejected the plan of Mayor 
Mollmnn and a committee of citizens 
to appoint a new Police Board. Mayor 
Mollman said thatjlf he were to np- 
r.n::it s new Police Board the Council 
would refuse to confirm his appoint- 
ment. This peraaokintry- disposes of 
the attempt of the eitiiene.ta change 
the board, it lit said. 



WASHINGTON, July 19.— Urging 
prompt adoption of his resolution for 
a congressional investigation of the re- 
cent race riots at East St. Louis, Ilk 
Senator Sherman today told the Senate 
the situation still was serious there aad 
"there is as much influence in procur- 
ing acquittal of guilty wen in Illinois 
.as i Here ever was in Georgia." 
. .".I ask this because this country is 
liable i.i '.x again • humiliated, '* - said 
Senator Sheraaa. "Both the Negro 
and the white e i tiien. of East St. Lonis 
are riving on the edge of another com- 
motion, oa tho edge of a volcano, that

COLONEL YOUNG RESTO RED 
TO AVHVH DDTT - 

Services Needed try Wat Department. 
Wat Secretary Fialasa Colored 
Tr ainin g Camp- 
Washington, D. C— In response to 
a letter from Dean Kelly Millar, of 
Howard University, > Secretary Baker 
iaaued a statement, to the effect that 
Colonel Young baa been restored to 
active duty. Dean Miller's letter t* 
the scctatary transmitted the com- 
plaint of Attorney Charles 3. Derden, 
of . J..-.S Angeles,, which represented 
the possibility of injustice being 
done Colonel Young at the present 
tine. Burden stated that it was tho 
opinion of men well informed on the 
subject, thst Colonel Young would bo 
retired by the government for tbo 
purpose of ^preventing bis further ad- 
vancement in the army, and his ac- 
tual participation in the present war. 
In response, the Wat Department is- 
sued the following- statement: 
"Dear Desn Miller: :f~ ' 

"I have just received your note/of 
July 5, and return, herewith the com. 
pljtint which you enclosed. I' am/ very 
happy to tell you that the work at 
Des Moines Camp is progressing re- 
markably well, snd the reports I have 
from it arc very good. The spirit 
of the men is fine, and apparently 
this encampment is going to do a 
very great deal of good, both to the 
country and to. the men. involved. 

"Your correspondent writes chiefly 
concerning Lieutenant Colonel Y'oung, 
a Colored officer of the regular army 
aad a graduate of West Paint, and 
a man with a line record for service 
in the' army. .Sometime ajro a board 
of.offieen passed open his healthand 
found him completely incapacitated 
for service; not obviously and visi- 
bly, bnt because", unfortunately, of 



their rinding that he

iffli. 



Elec- 
tion is that it •■ni Bright "a Diseeae. 
The report of , the board was ap- 
proved llv the .surgeon general, but in 
view of the fact that Colonel YoUng'a 
record is a long and honorable one, 
and the government needs officers of 
his. rank 'and ability, it was directed 
that the .report of the board 'be re- 
examine 'the question so^as to make 
quite, sure that there could ilot be any 
error in the matter. I have directed 
that the report of the board be re- 
turned to me personally'' before being 
acted upon, not because I .find myself 
able to believe that any prejudice 
would produce the deep dishonor of a 
false report, but beeanae I want to 
be able- to give ths assurance to all 
who inquire -that I have givenniy own 
pescuaal thought and attention to this 
case, in which so man V are interested. 

"I hope the board will find Colonel 
Young still able to perform - active 
"duty. In. the' meantime,, I have di- 
rected .that he be restore. I to active 
duty, and have at least' the hope of 
being able to have hia.. assistance tor 
the present.

HIS PROMISE 



' It ij commonly said that opportunity 
knocks once at the door of every one, 
and in the lives of all great men of the 
past »n can point to the psychological 
moment that mado them "great and 
gained for them undying fartfp. There 
never was nor never will be a better 
opportunity for the President to prove 
his sympathy and fair dealings to a 
rate aa expressed in a letter to Bishop 
Alexander Walters in New York City, 
October 10, 1P.12. His words ore as 
follows: 

"Tho Colored- people of the United 
States have made extraordinary pro- 
gress toward aelf support and useful- 
ness, and ought to be encouraged in 
every possible and proper way. My 
sympathy with them is of long stand- 
tag. and I want to assure them through 
you that ahould I become President of 
the United States, you may nmnt upon 
me for absolute fair dealing and for 
everything by which I could assist in

STOCKHOLDE RS 
.DENY GORDONS' 
I STATEMENTS 



EDITOR ST. LOUIS ABOUS:— 

In your issue of July 13th appeared 
a statement of Mr. W. C. Gordon which 
contained many things untrue. 

The undersigned request that you 
give the public an opportunity to .hear 
the other side. The statement by Mr. 
Gordon' that he had advanced th* sum 
of t5000.00 to Increase the •rWtal 
stock of the Acme Laundry Co.Jia un- 
true. Inasmuch as Mr. Gordon has 
seen fit to make the atatement abnul 
[he increase of stock and to rtaim that 
he advanced the money fur such in 
, reaae, it might' be well *o call atten- 
tion to the fact, that the first disagree- 
ment between the stockholders, Messrs. 
Kreeman. Mitchell.' and Moore came 
"bout through the insistence of Mr. 
irordon that he be given, without pay- 
ing for same, five shares of stock to 
which these stockholders would not 
consent. 

Attention is called to the fact that 
rlio receiver's sale was brought sfaout 
>>v -tie ok holders of the Acme Laundry. 
These stiieli hold err. instituted a suit 
Bg*$aa< W. C. Gordon ami requested the 
■ ■„urt to appoint a rerciver, which was 
done. The rcreiver took eharge>f the 
I'rnperty snd upon investigation found 
i hat the charges the stockholders made, 
that the Acme Laundry "as insolvent 
(inn unable to pay its debts were true, 
nnd- the court ordered the receiver to 
-11 the property;, but not to pay off 
Hi* rarfrtgage indebtedness of the Com- 
pany o- stated in Mr. Gordon's ar- 
ticle. The validity of the mortgage 
"hich Mr. Gordon now claims to hold 
against the Acme I.aun.lry Co.. is now 
bring investigated by the receiver and 
its legality is yet to he determined in 
■■i suit now pending in the Circuit 
''onrt. 

The undersigned also state that ths 
purely philanthropic motive, which Mr. 
i-ordon ela'im* was his reason for in- 
"■stinj; In the Acme Laundry, is not 
"liuwn "by anv of the proceeding* had 
j -i the rourt. as every charge made 
tgalaat W. C. Gordon by the stock- 
holders has Dot only Not Been Denied 
i-.e him, but stands admitted on the 
n-cord. a reading of which will con 
, iaee any ones even Mr. Gordon, that 
tt in only motive in subscribing for the 
■toe* of' the Acme Laundry was to 
make money, just as the other stock- 
li olden hoped to do.

: DESECRATING THE AMERICAN FLAG. 

According to press reports, during a race riot at Flat River 
St. Francois County, Mo., a few days ago, when white men were 
arrayed against foreign born men regardless of whether they were 
citizens or aliens; the leader of the mob carried a large American 
flag; and aa the rioters moved about the town, malting every for- 
eigner the target of assaults, the nag was waved continuously as 
■ though it indorsed every act .committed by those self styled Amer- 
icans. -« 

This id a clear case for the Department of Justice to take ac- 
tion. The flag has been' desecrated, yes more so than when a man 
refuses tiAise or uncover when the flag is; being raised to its mast, 

■Who U HeipontibU? Those who made up the immediate 
mob are not wholly to blame for the occurance at Flat River. It is 
the natural characteristic of a mob to go to extreme unless checked 
by the strong arm of the law. But the trouble with this country is 
that those having the enforce! Dg of the law in their charge have 
been too lax, because most of the acts of the mob violence have 
been imposed upon the colored people. The foreigner and the 
white$ have all joined in mobs to kill, butcher and -assault poor in- 
nocent colored people, and the officers have stood by and winked. 

As we have said in these columns before, they have been sow- 
ing the wind and of course, they must reap the whirl-wind. 

The acts of the mob styling themselves as. "Alt American*" 
with a spirit to drive from honest toil all .foreigners, sounds the 
alarm. It is time to wake up. It shows how grave the situation is. 

The American flag is an emblem of protection and justice. We 
wonder what those foreigners think who, under the waving of the 
stars ahd stripes, were driven from their jobs and 'from their 
homes.- They had the right Kj think that the flag was for their 
protection; .but we suppose they have changed their mind now. 
They have seen the lie "written'upon its face by a rnob. 

,We have been taught that the United State* Government backed 
up the flag, and if any one insulted it, tore .or desecrated it, all 
powers of the Government would be invoked to punish the guilty 
ones. But so far as we have heard, no efforta are being made to 
punish those responsible for heading a mob with an American flag, 



THEN. A. A..C, P. 

The local branch of the National Association for the Advance- 
ment of Colored People has proven its worth to the. community 
again by having an organization in tact that could step in at the 
right time and render the moat valuable serrieeto the community. 
This fact was demonstrated very clearly recently during the race- 
riot at East St. Louis in which many colored people were assaulted. 
killed and their homes burned. As soon as word -way received con- 
cerning the outbreak and the impending danger of further slaught- 
er, the officers of the Association called a meeting, which was 
augmented by-a popular response from the citizens, and immediate 
steps were taken to render assistance to the stricken and unfortu- 
nate victims of the Bast St. Louis ragb. 

We had no other organization that could' do the work. No 
member of thecolored race were" members of the Red Cross Unit 
of this city, so the logical organization was the-N. A. A. C. P. 

This work now has been undertaken and already has done the 
most satisfactory work. But the real task is still before it. The 
local branch musdeo-operate with the National Association in seeing 
that every colered person, who was a victim of the mob, enter in 
loosing life or property, or receiving personal injuries- shall have 
their claims against the city of East St. Louis properly presented 
and prosecuted. Two thousand murderers who took part is this 
massacre are at large, manjr of whom have fled to unknown parts. 
Others still are on the scene daily looking at the very spot where 
they killed a, poor helpless Negro wbohad never wronged hiaaa- 
.saiianta in any way. They are depending upon public sentiment 
outweighing justice and allowing them to go unpunished- 1 Already 
it seems certain that all the blame will belaid at the door of the 
Negroes. Everybody knows that is'-wrong. We ace reliably in- 
formed that large sums of money is being spent in an' effort to 
fasten the responsibility on the Negro that .the city may dodge the 
enderanity. We ahouid fed this situation keenly. We need vans' 
much at ttvis time a United "effort. 

The National headquarters -has asked Ihejeeal branch to raise 
. two thousand dollars. This, is a small amount. ■ Let all the small 
units that arw raising any amount for this work give their report 
through the local Brarwh of the N. A. A. G £. Help swell the fund 
v* nat we give m this wny will be duly sccounted for through the 
National organ. Thm Crista; but if every small unit takes its little 
amount and distributes it here and there, the colored people of St 
Louis will be behind in their part of the work. 

Let us all get behind that well organized, well greased and 
well prepared piece of machinery, and work together, for one e. that 
we . may loose none of our energy and concentrate our entire 
strength. ; . .* 



EFFICIENT' SERVICE ' 
,„'.„ T1 i? be * uti * ul ^bute. paid .u> th* life and character of the late 
Willis Barnett by Dr> Jfohn A. Rice. Pastor of St. Johns Methodist 
Episcopal Church, of this city last Wednesday, bore some very im- 
portaftt points. It is proper, to state here that St. John's Church is 
one of the wealthiest, and ia located in the moat fashionable- sec- 
tions in the- city.. After telling; of the deceased's sterling manhood 
(arte of character, and personal charm, Dr. Rice/ gave the key to 
the successful life of ■'Willis" by saying he was one of the most re- 
liable' men he had ever bad dealings with. *;Hecould be absolutely 
trusted to do what be said. fl* never made excuses. His work 
tntiousty done." 



Tsssaost itgmncnnt points in this discourse waa, that Mr Bar- 
nett was thoroughly reliable, always dependable! studied hia sur- 
roundings and' made the best' of his opportunities. He held one 
position nearly forty years, and be dignified that service 

He has set the nan, may others follow bis footsteps.

: Why should ire be ashamed of tb« 
OoapclT Men an not aiduiniod of per- 

versions of' It. 
Our t rlends who 
have e a p o u ■ e d 
modern "tarns" 
talk of their beau- 
tlea in the parlor 
Bpd on the sines t, 
bund Bl llterii- 
tare about them 
and Invite us to 
their meetings. 
It seems natural 
f or l h el i 1 to do eo. 
But there U snine- 
t h I n g Unnatural 
i( bout our doing 
likewise Id regard 
the OospeL 

way* 

We can understand why Pan! mlgbt 

have been- ashamed or the Gospel In 

Bom*. Today the cross has- become 

' ilorlfled In men's ere*, hot then It 

was, only tin' ayl it.nl of soarae, and 

Paul preached •■« savior ooa who 
was crndOed between two thieves. 
Many of the early Chriatlana were of 
lowly station while Rome was the. cen- 
ter of wealth, culture and power. ' 

Things have changed somewhat, 
outwardly, yet we too And abundant 
temptations to bo ashamed of the 
Gospel Scientific circle, often rtdl- 
v cole Its niching as to man'a origin, 
coqdltlon arid destiny. The working- 
man finds It takes courage to roll his 
companions of his conversion and 
school boys win Jibe their fellow who 
dares to kneel at hie bedside to pray. 
Prances Ridley Havergal tells of at- 
tending a social gathering one eve- 
ning where she waa Invited to sing. 
Sbe selected a sweet ■ hymn 'about 
Jesus and. sang it, snd as we read, of 
it, we feel It was not easy to do that. 
Why We, Are Ashamed. 
And now It la time to try to give 
the real reason why I'nul might have 
been ashamed of the Gospel at Borne, 
Why we mky' be ashamed ot it now, 
and. on the contrary, why the follow- 
ers of \new "Isms" are not ashamed 
of them. We believe It Is because of 
the different attitude taken towards 
map. The Gospel regards him as lost, 
and undone, needing a Savior who 
redeems him by the. death of the 

.crow, rt tella aim he 'MM be born 
again, becoming a new creation. .True, 
the Gospel holds before man a des- 
tiny such as haa not entered lita heart 
to conceive. 

Paul tells, however, why he waa not 
ashamed. First, the Gospel Is u pow- 
er. Of this there can be .no doubt. 
For example, John iAwrcnce declared 
that however. 'much the' British gov- 
ernment has done tor India, the mis- 
sionary has done more; the modern 
educational system of India sprang 
from Carey and l-mit through ilacan- 
K'V. Dr. Edgerton It. Young tella. in 
a fasdnatlng way, how thla aeme Gos- 
pel wrought changes among' the Amer- 
ican Indkana tor the far north, trans- 
forming them -from improvident sav- 
ages InM owners. of harvesting ma- 
chinery and well-built barns and boun- 
t«i-us Crops. 

That Converted Medicine M an. 
Bat this Is not stl; It Is a power 
"unto solvation." ■ Let others do with, 
all their enchantmenta what thai Gos- 
pel is doing every dn y— hrtngln* 
peace to bad consciences, contentment 
to restless hearts, and hope to .those 
whose' outlook .Into the future Is 
gloomy- We recall one story told by

LESSON FOR JULY 22 



LESBON TKXT-JS Kins. UJ0-B, BUI. 

' COl.UEN TEXT-God Is our rstufa and 

atranslh, a very pnnnt help In trouble 

Paa. M:I. ,•»,".- ' 

ILast week's lesson was a great pic- 
ture of the reform, of the notion. To- 
day we have another, picture which; 
needs to bo carefully put before the 
children. It Is u notional picture of n. 
ruler and the Inrasicin of till country. 
In reality it reveals the- principles 
which ere the same today, and. which 
affect the lives of bayaVand girls as 
well as men ; the dangers, temptations, 
the need of prayer.-the need of a life 
of faith In <:.nl. the cn.re ot a heavenly 
f tuber, deliverance and victory. Ills 
a great thing for any notion or any 
Individual to have such a marvelous 
experience of God's salvation. It oc- 
curred -probably B. C. 701, the latter 
part of Hexeklah's reign. Assyria on 
the north was enlarging Its borders 
and seeking' to overcome Judea. Bead 
parallel accounts In ri Kings IS; IT 
Cbrcin. 32 and Isa. 30:37. We have on 
the Taylor cylinder an account by Sen- 
nuclierib of the victory over Heseklsh, 
found In Nineveh In 1830 and now In 
tbe British museum. 

I. The Situation. When the great 
Sargon died at Nineveh, the Syrian 
governments sought to, assert tBelr In- 
dependence. It was a good time for 
Heiekiah also to assert hll Independ- 
ence. Accordingly they refused to pay 
the customary tribute to Assyria. Far 
a time Sednnrherib was too busy at- 
tending to other portions of the en> 
plfe to pay much attention to the city

II. The Supplication (tt/ 20-22). 
Ood does' tblncs' because we pray- 
There was more power In'HeMklah's 
prayer than there waa In his army. 
.ThroiiRb bis prayers be Isld 18S.00U 
o( his enemies in -the grave. Beaeklah's 
Ood saved hla people out of the hand 
of Sennacherib (v.- ID), Ood dld.lt. One 

great reitson why he- heard Hezeklnh's 
prayer was becaase It was for God's 
own (lory'that Hexeklah asked (v. 18). 
One great reason- why n many of our 
prayers ure not answered la because 
they are selfish — see Muc ' our own 
trrntfficatlon and not God's honor 
(Jatnea 4 :3 R. \ - .). . Reading talu 
clotbee Hnd.puttloc on sackcloth, He~ 
xeklab went to the house of God while 
hla messengers soucht out the prophet 
Isaiah, ' From II Cbron. 32 :20 we And 
that Isaiah Joined with TIeseklah In 
Ms earnest- prayer (Hntt. 13:19. 30). 
thus the ilng and prophet worked as 
well -ai prayed. They showed their 
faltlt by their work (James 2:VT, IS). 
At the same time they waitednpoh 
God for an answer, not becsnse God 
was nnwilUeg .to bestow good things. 
or TOst be trnportuued, but that hit 
glfta may bring the/ greater beneflt 
lie. sometimes . delnya his. answer. 
thereby fitting na ti. receive them'be- 
cause of the Intensity of oar desire 
and to appreciate the things he haa 
to bestow. Ood la a* ready to aay to 
us as. to Heseklsh, "^Thy prayer is 
heard." if we will not meet the eoodl? 
ii'ins of piWvaJling prayer (I John 
3^2; I 'jahnfttU: itora. 8:20.^7).
